    The NFA is unconstitutional.

    Was this question rhetorical?

    I'm not sure about that. I've never seen a 30-06 at a theater and I go quite a bit. All I have seen are the silly, "Unlicensed possession blah blah blah" signs.

    Might want to know what you ate talking about before you let your finger loose on the keyboard. Texas law does not prevent carry in theaters. Not to mention we were talking about federal laws and you are now talking about state laws. Nice try though.

    If you're not a fan of organized society, why not retire to the tropical anarchist's paradise of Somalia?

    Nowhere else but on the Internet does not wanting every irresponsible moron at Wal-Mart to have a Minuteman silo and a Mark 19 make a person a statist.

    May I suggest Somalia, I think their lawless ways might fit your desire for no government interference and guess what you can have your RPGs and FA AK47s as well :wavey:

    (Just saw I was the 2nd person to suggest this to you)

    Because before the NFA and GCA of 68 America was some sort of 3rd world version of a Thomas Hobbes wet dream?

    All lawlessness and violence, brutish and nasty.

    Bull Crap. You must be a lawyer.

    How does sawing the barrel off of a shotgun without the permission of the state conflict with the rights of others?
    How does having an RPG or a grenade conflict with the rights of others?

    They are explosives. And there is no 'explosives control,' but instead those substances and devices are outright banned by Fed. law. Not exactly the same thing as a sbr, mg, or suppressor.

    So, the NFA being repealed would not magically allow anyone and their momma to possess bombs, grenades, and rpg's.

    IMO, it was a presumtuous, misinformed, and short-sighted opinion for Scalia to use.

    Come on Ruggles.

    Just skip to the standard gun banners argument.

    "What, do you want NUCLEAR weapons in the hands of civilians?!?! Because we can 'regulate' nukes, we can 'regulate' semi-automatics and folding stocks."

    Anti-gunner.

    Yes.

    The number of silencer companies has shot through the roof lately. Every time I got to an FFL that is also an SOT there is always at least someone paying for something and filling out the transfer paper work for a stamp (usually an SBR or SBS). With the increase in popularity, I think it is just a matter of time.

    I have seen those. However, if you have a CCL, at least in this state, you cannot bring it to a sporting event or an amusement park. I think theaters fall into that descriptor as well. I have a CCL as well as well as the authorized firearms I use on duty. When I am off, I prefer to off, that is why I went out and got my own CCL.

    As I said much earlier and often in this thread I am for some refinement of the NFA. I agree the barrel length of a shotgun is not a relevant issue for example.

    But a RPG or a grenade are devices that I would deem too destructive to be on store shelves for you or I to buy like a box of ammo. IMO your/my right to own them do not outweigh societies right to be relatively secure from you/me using them in a crowed restaurant for example.

    Yeah, we want a society ran by arrogant attorneys that want to figure out how to deprive as many people out their guaranteed freedom's to make a living reinventing society as they see fit from their gated communities.

    Join the rest of us in society, the water is warm.

    Movie theaters are not a "no carry" zone in Texas. Quick Google check:

    http://www.khou.com/news/texas-news...ers-unless-signs-say-otherwise-163241606.html

    You are correct about the sporting event and amusement park being no carry zones.

    Then surely we can regulate who breeds in society as well, there isn't any thing in the Constitution that wouldn't prohibit us from curtailing your need to breed.
